Where the heck are they? I want 'em. The kids are getting tired of the old ones already.

So you have downloaded, watched, and posted reviews for the 1906 films already already available? Sure it would be nice to have everything, but how are you equiped to sort through those already available with no metadata or snapshots or reviews to decide what you will spend your bandwidth downloading? Will you volunteer to help out digitizing all the remaining films, supplying metadata, etc? Do you have films to contribute to the archive? Tell the kids to go out and play.

Why heck, I'd volunteer to digitize & provide metadata for all those other 43,000 films. Sign me up!! :) :)

(Shoot, I'll even buy some of the many 16mm films sold on eBay, and contribute those!)

Much appreciated, Ryan. I guess they'll be ready in a couple weeks, then. I'd do it myself, but I got some other things going on.

From what I hear (other people may be able to confirm), there's another batch of films (something like three hundred?) in the process of being digitized right now. I still haven't looked at the _last_ batch to be added, though, so I'm pretty much behind :)

Well, actually, the "kids" just want more ones with cartoons and breasts. Burned through those pretty quick...
